Happy Late Halloween!

She was trying to attack me

Sorry about the low cut shirt ; )
This is why I had a girl...someone to share my fingernail polish with!

We got to go to Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen's and Davin and Marlie shared their toys!

This is what she does after her nap...eats her crib!

So here's my excuse for being a week late on these pictures...the flu attacked us! Jake and I both got the flu and Bridget had to get shots and her first 2 teeth finally popped up! Needless to say, there was lots of crying, whining, and late nights in the Sorensen household, and not just from Jake! (Was that funny? I was trying to be funny. ; )) But we're all getting better and looking forward to a new week. Anyway...Halloween was lots of fun! We hung out with some friends and ate some yummy food! Thanks Travis and Rachel! Bridget was Tinkerbell and it was my first year to try my hand at a homemade costume. My mom is the best at this...and I am not! She's very good at sewing and very creative, but after being in Interior Design school for these past few years, I have gotten pretty good with a hot glue gun! So here's some pictures from Halloween and the past few weeks!

Just to hold my parents over!

So blogging has gotten much more difficult now that Bridget is very mobile! When she wants to she'll crawl and other times she scoots. Right now she is sitting on my feet eating them and whining. She really doesn't like it when I do anything not involving her..little does she know that right now it's still all about her! Even though life is crazy having a baby, it's more fun than I ever imagined. It's so neat to see her learn and grow. I'm so grateful for my family and the chance I have to be a mom! Well, right now I'm smelling something not too pleasant so I guess it's time to go change a diaper!

This is her favorite animal...Douglas Bubble Trousers...
Ethan and Meredith named him. We call him Doug for short!

I don't know if this video is working, but here's why
she won't laugh for me...I have this as competition!

A Few Fun Days!

We've had a fun week so far despite the fact that Bridget has her first cold. Of course Jake and I are freaking out over a silly stuffy nose and a fever but what can ya do, we're new at this. We thought she might be teething but this is for sure a cold..poor girl. Monday, my friend Michelle came over and brought her daughter Bentley to play with Bridget. (Michelle I'm so sorry if Bentley gets sick!) It was fun to watch the girls because they actually acknowledged each other and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Their clothes even matched! Then Tuesday we got to go to the zoo with our friend Lois. It got pretty stormy but we had a good time.

Here's the baby elephant..Bridget was big when
she was born but at least she wasn't 251 lbs!

I love turtles!

The monkey and Bridget just stared at each

Please Smile! Please!

So we decided it was probably time to get Bridgee's pictures taken again! And for any of you who have tried to take a picture of her, you know that she knows exactly when to stop smiling...right as you're taking the picture. So we were lucky to get a few of her showing those gums! She really is a happy baby, just not in front of the camera.

Why does she look afraid of her parents?

The flower didn't quite make it to the front of her
head for these pictures

Daddy's Girl

Here's a little video of Jake and Bridgee playing...clearly he is more fun than me because he can always get her to laugh and I only have gotten a "half laugh" out of her. I was pretty suprised at how happy she was though because she got her 4 month shots today. So sad! She did great though, weighing in at 15.9 lbs! We love our little chunk! So enjoy the movie and ignore me talking on the phone in the background!

Just too busy!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted a blog! We've been quite busy! We moved to Orem into a bigger apartment, thank goodness, I went home to Colorado for 2 weeks, got sick, my little brother and sister came for a week while Jake went backpacking, and now finally I have some time to unpack and blog of course! Colorado was a blast..we even had a little tornado while I was there! Our new apartment is so fun, Bridget has her own room even though she doesn't sleep in there. I'm having a hard time letting her be so far away..across the hall! We even have a pool here! We're so grateful for all the space.

Jake just started his student seminary teaching at American Fork High School and he is loving it. He says he has great students and he's learning alot. I'm so proud of him and excited to see what happens with all this!

Here is the "fort" we build for Bridget when we
go swimming and she needs a break. Looks rather
comfortable don't ya think? I wish I looked that
cute in a bikini!

This is her giraffe my parents bought for her...
she loves to cuddle with him and he puts
her right to sleep! I suggest all moms get cute giraffes
for their babies!

Just a few more!

Here's just a couple more pictures from our fun weekend!

Stadium of Fire

Ok..not the cutest face she's ever made, but
the shirt is pretty cute! Everytime we go to Moab
we always stop at the t-shirt shop and make shirts
so my family stopped there on their way to Provo
and made Bridgee her very first Moab shirt!
Thanks fam!

More blessing pictures

So lady like isn't she?

An Eventful Weekend

This past weekend was so much fun! My family came out and took Jake, Bridget, and I to Stadium of Fire and then Sunday we had Bridgee's baby blessing. Stadium of Fire was so fun, we were worried about how Bridget would handle all the noise but she did great! We just took turns holding a blanket over her ears and she didn't seem to be bothered at all. And I have to admit, the Jonas Brothers were awesome! ; ) It was so fun to see my little sister's reaction when they walked out on stage. It was even more fun to see my mom dancing and singing all the songs. I'm pretty sure my dad, Ethan, and Jake had a good time too! My parents got our family a hotel for after so we all went back and crashed! Jake has been working crazy hours between his 3 jobs so he was especially tired! The next day was the blessing and we had to have it after church because our family is SO big! It was so neat to see so many people that we love come to see our little Bridgee get blessed. It was a beautiful blessing and luckily Jake's Grandma Sorensen wrote it down for us, thanks Grandma! And thanks to everyone else who helped with the blessing!(Mom and Dad ;)

I thought the rompers looked
just as cute on her head as they do
on her bum!

Here's Bridgee Bear in her blessing dress. She's
laying on the blanket that my Grandma Smith
made for all my sibling's and me to be blessed in.
My mom brought it for Bridgee to use, I thought
it was so sweet.

My dad loves it when she sticks her tongue out,
and so do I!

The Jonas Brothers at Stadium of fun!

Here's a random little story..Saturday morning I was laying
in bed with Bridget and the window was open and I heard this
really wierd swooshing sound. We were trying to sleep so I got up
to shut the window and when I layed back down Bridget's face
looked yellow! I was so confused! I looked out the window and
saw a giant hot air balloon a few yards away from my apartment.
It was so crazy! I thought it was just the most random thing.

I only wish she really knew how to hold her bottle!

In all of yesterday's events, I totally forgot to give Bridget's "stats!" The little chunk weighs 12.2 lbs. which is in the 80 percentile, and she is 24 inches long which is in the 97 percentile! My parents said I was the exact same way when I was a baby. Bridget is smiling so much and making little giggle sounds, it's so cute! Jake and I are pretty sure she's going to roll over very soon. She makes it half way over and then her arm gets in the way. We're having so much fun being parents and we're so grateful for her!

A Series of Unfortunate Events (and one fortunate)

We'll begin with the good, on Sunday my grandparents braved the rainy, wet freeway just to visit us. It was really fun and so good to see them. Now for the not so good, today Bridgee had to get shots! All morning I was so nervous and trying not to cry because I had to go without Jake and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to handle her being in pain. So I was getting ready to leave when I get a text from Jake saying he had just fainted at work. Wonderful! He had been going on no sleep, no food, and no water which resulted in passing out. I was now even more of a wreck. I called my dad so he could help calm me down and then headed to the doctor's office. Much to my surprise, Bridgee did very well! She hardly cried at all! So as soon as we got home I got some Tylenol in her and lots of sleep, water, and food for Jake and now my sick little family seems to be doing better!

Great gma and gpa Forbes

Sunshine and Summer time!

We've had a fun past few days with Jake's work schedule not being so crazy so we've taken advantage of this great weather. We've been to the park, the pool, Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen's, and just had lots of fun!

We went to the water park with Lisa and Carter,

her in the face!

All Smiles!

Today was a really fun day...we went to the park and had hamburgers with our best friends Mike and Lisa and their baby Carter. It was good weather and luckily the babies behaved! I caught Bridget smiling on camera finally, the pictures are pretty dark but you get the idea!

From this!

From this!
Last April I had long blond hair and I could see my hip bones, and in less than 365 days I now have short dark hair and can't even see my feet let alone hip bones!

Dinosaur Bones

Dinosaur Bones
When my mom was pregnant with my little brother Ethan, she showed us the ultrasound picture and my other little brother Bennett was pretty certain it was a picture of dinosaur bones. So here she is, our cute pile of dinosaur bones!! Hopefully she's as cute in real life as she is here!

The best money we ever spent!

The best money we ever spent!
It's been really fun buying stuff for the baby on the way, Jake has especially had fun setting up all the new gadgets that bounce, swing, and sing! We have no room left in our tiny one room apartment but it's all worth it! I'm just hoping she really is a girl because I don't know what we'll do with all this pink stuff if she turns out to be a boy!

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake
On February 14th my mom, grandma, and sister threw me an awesome baby shower back home in Colorado. It was kind of ironic that the same weekend last year they were throwing me a bridal shower. Anyway, my mom and sister Meredith made me the cutest diaper cake I've ever seen!!

A lovely little sinus infection...

A lovely little sinus infection...
So despite all the other wierd little things that go wrong with me, I never get sick! But for some reason when I went home to Colorado, I got the worst sinus infection I've had in so long! Being pregnant I can't take any medication so I had to resort to..well just take a look!
